Organized study groups are offered to help students learn new material and improve exam scores. Different group styles ensure we meet the needs of all learners.

Group styles

Question Groups

Students practice applying newly honed knowledge to board-style questions geared to lecture objectives. Test-taking strategy skills drive the discussions surrounding each question hand-selected by learning specialists to sharpen critical thinking skills on high-yield topics.

Content Connections Groups

Students actively discuss high-yield topics from select material from the previous week. Connections to previously learned content enable students to practice knowledge acquisition and retrieval skills. These groups are facilitated by upperclassmen.

Supplemental Instruction

Facilitators who have been selected, trained by learning specialists and have successfully completed the curriculum run weekly supplemental instruction sessions that combine elements of Content Connections and Question Groups to review the previous week's lectures.


  • Sign-ups for groups are emailed to students when appropriate for their cohort.
